  • God Isn’t Dead in Gotham (Tim Keller in NYC)

    wsj.com ^ | Kate Bachelder
    ‘Cheer up, you’re worse than you think,” Rev. Timothy Keller says with a smile. He’s explaining that humans are more weak, more fallen, more warped than they “ever dare admit or even believe.” Then comes the good news: At the same time people are “more loved in Christ and more accepted than they could ever imagine or hope.” Do you know many New Yorkers who believe that? Perhaps not, but on Sundays some 5,500 city folk file into the church Mr. Keller founded 25 years ago, Redeemer Presbyterian, at eight packed services across three Manhattan locations, the Greenwich Village campus...

  • Chinese restaurant targeted by Harvard professor 'humbled' by show of support

    The owners of Sichuan Garden –the Boston-area Chinese restaurant targeted by a Harvard professor who launched an email-tirade at the eatery for a $4 overcharge—say they are humbled by the overwhelming show of support by the public. Xing Yan Zhang, manager of Sichuan Garden in Brookline, Massachusetts, told FoxNews.com that "a lot people are coming in to show their support. We are humbled." Ran Duan, whose family runs Sichuan Garden and who is also an accomplished bartender, released a statement Wednesday evening detailing how they've been inundated with offers of help from around the world, including free website services, legal...

    Friends and family members of Jessica Chambers, the Mississippi woman who was set on fire and burned to death this week, packed a funeral chapel Saturday to remember her life — as questions remained about who killed her in such a horrible way. Deborah Sanders, the 19-year-old’s aunt, said before the service at Wells Funeral in Batesville that the support of the community following the young woman’s death has helped comfort the family, but they are desperate to find whoever killed her. Hundreds attended the woman’s wake Friday.

    We are going to attempt to share the discoveries and keep the text digestible, but the depth here is really consuming. So we’ll start with a troubling outline of the investigation and then share more alarming evidence of big trouble in a small town. Here’s a video of District Attorney John Champion and Panola County Sheriff Dennis Darby, giving a press conference on Thursday. If you pay close attention you can hear cause for initial concern. What we outline after is jaw dropping: First concern – given the current framework and national sentiment around racial crime, you can quickly identify...

    Jorge “Jinho” Ferreira feels the tension between being black and carrying a badge every day as a sheriff’s deputy in Alameda County, California. “I feel like you have to prove yourself on every level,” said Ferreira, 39, who patrols about 30 miles east of San Francisco. “You have to prove yourself to the black community, you have to prove yourself to all of your co-workers, you have to prove yourself to society.” With the nation roiled by two grand juries’ recent decisions not to indict white police officers in the deaths of unarmed black men, some black officers say that...

    WND ^ | Gina Loudon
    Burned buildings, looted businesses and riots here may be getting the bulk of the media’s attention, but at least one group is warning the racial violence is just beginning, with black rage turning viciously against white immigrants. Within days of the death of black teenager Michael Brown at the hands of a local policeman, leftist activists from outside of Ferguson set up a protest campaign office in the besieged city. Almost immediately, what started as “peaceful protests” escalated into rampant looting. The local state senator, a black Democrat, took to the airwaves demanding justice. She would later make the ominous...

    For just about everyone else who has dealt with Gruber, though—Democrats, academics, policy wonks, and the health care reporters who used to call him regularly for catchy quotes about what the latest Obamacare development really means—the videos are just head-scratchers. He’s a smart guy, everyone says, and he has been a hugely successful economist who clearly knows his health care policy. So they’re all coming back to the same question: Why the hell would he say that? Does he really believe it? The answer, according to the people who know Gruber best, is that he has always been someone who...

    I never imagined that we would reach a point in this country where facts would be ignored on a national level. We seem to have reached it with the Michael Brown case. As I watched the spectacle of our elected official in the Congressional Black Caucus stand on the house floor and use the debunked “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture, I realized that black America has reached a point of no return. Every day since the Grand Jury decision was released (along with the autopsy findings and witness testimonies), our so-called black elected leaders along with black academics have appeared...

    A new report looks at the state of the legal profession in 2030, and it doesn't look too pretty as far as employment is concerned, io9 reports. "It is no longer unrealistic to consider that workplace robots and their AI processing systems could reach the point of general production by 2030," the report, by Jomati Consultants, says. And those robots could eventually "do the work of a dozen low-level associates. They would not get tired. They would not seek advancement (or) pay rises." A firm's upper echelons would still be populated by actual human lawyers, but the need for associates...
  • Obama, complaining of sore throat, diagnosed with acid reflux

    12/06/2014 5:12:44 PM PST · by RoosterRedux · 151 replies
    President Barack Obama, who had medical tests on Saturday after complaining of a sore throat, is suffering from acid reflux, the president's physician said. "The president's symptoms are consistent with soft tissue inflammation related to acid reflux and will be treated accordingly," Obama's doctor, Captain Ronny Jackson, said in a statement. Acid reflux is a condition in which the stomach contents flow back up from the stomach into the esophagus, causing such symptoms as heartburn and sore throat. Obama, 53, went to Walter Reed military hospital for a fiber optic exam of his throat and since swelling was detected, doctors...

    President Obama betrayed the nation last night. Even as he went on national television to respond to the grand jury’s decision not to indict Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson for fatally shooting 18-year-old Michael Brown in August, the vicious violence that would destroy businesses and livelihoods over the next several hours was underway. Obama had one job and one job only last night: to defend the workings of the criminal-justice system and the rule of law. Instead, he turned his talk into a primer on police racism and criminal-justice bias. In so doing, he perverted his role as the...
  • A Fantasy-driven Muslim World can Never Become Modern

    AmericanThinker.com ^ | James Lewis
    Every single radical Muslim group today lives in cultlike fantasy. They all distort reality, and teach it to their converts and their children. The constant warfare of the Muslim world goes back to that one single fact -- the imams spread hateful fantasies about the Jews, the Christians, and the return of the Righteous Caliphs, and after particularly hot Friday sermons, the mobs go out to burn and kill. This has been going on for a thousand years or more. It is why in Europe, parts of the major cities are now no-go zones for the police and the kuffirs....
  • Egyptian court dismisses charges against Hosni Mubarak

    An Egyptian court on Saturday dismissed murder charges against former president Hosni Mubarak in connection with the killing of protesters in the 2011 uprising that ended his nearly three-decade reign. The ruling marks another major setback for the young activists who spearheaded the Arab Spring-inspired uprising nearly four years ago -- many of whom are now in jail or have withdrawn from politics -- and will reinforce the perception that Mubarak's autocratic state remains in place, albeit led by a new president, former military chief Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi. Saturday's verdict concludes Mubarak's retrial along with his two sons, his security chief...

    Earlier this month, ESPN’s E: 60 series brought you the inspirational story of Kayla Montgomery, a North Carolina teenager living with multiple sclerosis; an incurable disease where the body’s immune system attacks its own nerve cells. She grew up loving the game of soccer, but was forced to stop upon her diagnosis. She lost feeling in her legs for eight months, but with the help of medication; she was able to recover. After that, she decided to take up running. Knowing the window of opportunity for running could be short, Kayla wanted to make the most of it, which is...

    In 2014 you'd be forgiven for thinking the music industry is all about online charts and digital downloads, but the latest figures released by the Official Charts Company reveal a corresponding boom in vinyl record sales which have reached an 18-year high. More than one million records have been sold in the UK so far this year – a number which is expected to rise even further by the end of Christmas. We haven't bought that many since 1996, back when cassette tapes were still considered technologically advanced... Sales have been driven primarily by the Arctic Monkeys (whose LP AM...

    Foxnews.com ^ | Nick Adams
    President Obama’s defiance appears to know no bounds. Why do I say this? Consider this: Since the beginning of the last century, Australia is the only country to have fought alongside the United States in every single major conflict. Australia is America’s closest ally in Asia, and indeed, the world. So, what President Obama did when he came to the G20 meeting in Brisbane, Australia, was stunning and offensive. Mirroring his action in sending the bust of Winston Churchill back to England, the President gave a provocative, anti-Abbott (Australia’s PM) speech on climate change at the University of Queensland. But...

  • Alleged Victim: Cosby Is A ‘Serial Rapist’

    Another woman has come forward to claim that she was raped by Bill Cosby. Joan Tarshis told “CBS This Morning” that the actor and comedian drugged and raped her on two separate occasions in 1969 when she was 19. She said that Cosby invited her to help come up with material for his comedy act. Then when she was on the set of “The Bill Cosby Show,” he gave her a cocktail. “I was sitting up writing one second and the next second I was lying down on the couch having my underwear taken off,” Tarshis said. She said Cosby...

    Obviously, the most racist thing in America today is the Racist Reverends, Sharpton, Jackson and Wright and their race hustling, shamefully backed up by Holder and Obama. This naked appeal to race descended to a new low in the Obama administration with the nationalization of the Trayvon and Ferguson killings. That's real racism. Then there's the little question of racial disparity in the single-parent stakes. Little black children are far more likely than white children to be deprived of the basic human right of their married mother living with their married biological father. That's racism. Then there's the murder statistics....

    AmericanThinker.com ^ | Jeannie DeAngelis
    America’s Styrofoam-cup-saluting leader is supposed to be “repelling sudden attacks,” not coordinating them. That’s why, however unconventional it may sound, Congress should consider this illegal raid against our sovereign nation, regardless of who the alien army’s leader is, an act of war. During the Constitutional Convention, framer James Madison wrote that Congress should be given the power not to “make war” but to “declare war.” If promoters of congressional power are correct, doesn’t Congress -- whether they like it or not -- then have a moral responsibility to “declare war” on any force that initiates hostilities against the United States?...

    The revelations could not have come at a worse time for the administration. For one thing, the Supreme Court just granted certiorari in the King case. That case tests whether the clear language of the ObamaCare subsidies for those who sign up under state-run plans was improperly extended by IRS to signers on the federal website, a bit of administration legerdemain to keep ObamaCare viable after 37 states refused to set up state insurance exchanges. You see, Gruber’s arrogance revealed that the scheme was not only contrary to the clear language of the statute, but as well to the intent...

    AmericanThinker.com ^ | Richard L. Cravatts
    The Nazification of Israelis -- and by extension, Jews -- is both breathtaking in its moral inversion and cruel in the way it makes the actual victims of the Third Reich’s horrors a modern-day reincarnation of that same barbarity. It is, in the words of Boston University’s Richard Landes, “moral sadism,” a salient example of Holocaust inversion that is at once ahistorical, disingenuous, and grotesque in its moral and factual inaccuracy. In reflecting on the current trend, he perceived in the burgeoning of anti-Israelism around the world, Canadian Member of Parliament Irwin Cotler once observed that conventional strains of anti-Semitism...

    Government run health care systems all fail, and for the same reasons that government cannot effectively produce or distribute other commodities. The unimpeachable economic truth is that a few smart people who try to devise grandiose business solutions – no matter how smart they are – are not as smart as all of us. No Politburo, no think tank, and certainly no group of unelected Obama Administration bureaucrats can think their way through the millions and millions of decisions that millions and millions of individuals make daily about their own health care – individuals acting in their own economic interest,...

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Saturday that the Americas were discovered by Muslims in the 12th century, nearly three centuries before Christopher Columbus set foot there. "Contacts between Latin America and Islam date back to the 12th century. Muslims discovered America in 1178, not Christopher Columbus," the conservative president said in a televised speech during an Istanbul summit of Muslim leaders from Latin America. "Muslim sailors arrived in America from 1178. Columbus mentioned the existence of a mosque on a hill on the Cuban coast," Erdogan said.

    Congressional Republicans seized Wednesday on controversial comments made by a former health-care consultant to the Obama administration, with one leading House conservative suggesting that hearings could be called in response as part of the GOP effort to dismantle the law in the next Congress and turn public opinion ahead of the 2016 election. "We may want to have hearings on this," said Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), an influential voice among GOP hardliners and a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, in an interview at the Capitol. "We shouldn't be surprised they were misleading us."

    11/12/2014 5:50:52 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 29 replies
    Which brings us to attempt three -- the “Transformation,” I guess we’ll call it. The flaw here arose from the selection of a completely uneducated and possibly ineducable candidate to carry it out. Barack Obama checked all the boxes and touched all the bases during his career without, it seems, ever learning a single thing worth knowing. The tell with this man was the fact that he utterly lacks the humility that has marked men of wisdom since Confucius and Socrates. According to Obama, he was “a better speechwriter than his speechwriters,” a better economist, better banker, better planner, and...

When my book "George Washington’s Secret Six: The Spy Ring that Saved the American Revolution" ,written with co-author Don Yaeger, was first released in November 2013, over half-a-million people scrambled to buy it and one of the elements that struck a chord most strongly with readers was the enigmatic figure of...

    We are witnessing the total collapse of a bad idea. Obamaism, a quasi-socialist commitment to a more powerful government at home and an abdication of American leadership around the world, is being exposed as a historic calamity. It is fueling domestic fear and global disorder and may well lead to a world war. If there is a smidgen of a silver lining, it is that the unraveling, complete with Obama’s shameless attempts to duck responsibility, is playing out on the eve of the midterm elections. Fortunately, voters seem ready to respond by giving Republicans control of both houses of Congress....

    With one month until Election Day, Republicans' chances for retaking the Senate and picking up seats in the House are improving. The GOP has been buoyed by positive public polling, while red-state Democrats are still struggling to find distance from President Obama. There are bright spots and even some unexpected new targets on the map for both parties, but the overall national environment seems to have ticked a bit toward Republicans. The GOP needs to win a net of six seats to retake control of the Senate, and Republicans seem better-positioned to do so now than they did through much...

Jacob Mugambi Muriithi, 30, is behind bars on a terrorism complaint, the Oklahoman reported, adding that his bail is set at $1 million. Muriithi — a native of Kenya who reportedly identified himself as a Muslim — was working with the victim for the first time Sept. 19 at the Bellevue Nursing Home when he made the threats, the arrest warrant affidavit said. Muriithi told her that he “represented ISIS and that ISIS kills Christians,” the police...

    Obama is also right that “we have our own racial and ethnic tensions.” But those tensions are exacerbated by the selective narratives favored by Obama and Holder, who a day before Obama’s U.N. speech had invoked the Ferguson riots as a wake-up call to the country to confront the “hard truths” of race and policing. Addressing a conference on incarceration, Holder urged the police to “work with the communities they serve . . . by forging close bonds, establishing deep trust, and fostering robust engagement.” Well and good, but police-civilian relations are a two-way street. Few are the departments that...

    Colleen Hufford of Moore Oklahoma may be missing her head, but the real victims are Muslims, or so we are being asked to believe. In fact, according to the Imam of the Islamic Institute of Boston, Islam suffers a “double hurt.” And here I thought Ms. Hufford had it bad. The imam should know, after all, it was his Institute’s “resident scholar” who was reportedly the former imam of the Oklahoma mosque attended by Alton Alexander Nolen, aka Jah’Keem Yisrael, who wielded the knife separating Ms. H’s head from her body. And the leadership of that Oklahoma mosque agree that...
  • Islam's war on the West (Ye olde Vanity)

    It should be apparent to American citizens that our government will not, cannot, defend us from the forces of Islam (who have declared war on us).

The Values Voter conference offered an early glimpse of what’s sure to be a spirited battle for the allegiance of Christian conservatives in 2016. In a half-hour speech, the Lone Star State Republican quoted “Amazing Grace” and cited Psalms; Cruz shared a personal story about how his...
  • Cheney: ‘Stunned’ over Obama comparison between Mideast, Ferguson unrest

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney said he was “stunned” that President Obama appeared to compare the unrest in the Middle East to the unrest in Ferguson, Mo., during his United Nations speech. Cheney, speaking with Fox News on Wednesday, said it’s “outrageous” to suggest a “moral equivalence” between the two situations. “I was stunned. I mean, in one case, you've got a police officer involved in a shooting. There may be questions about it. They'll be sorted out through the legal process. There's no comparison to that with what ISIS is doing to thousands of people throughout the Middle East,...
